COACHING BY PRODUCTION
This program is the same as the Annual Production Coaching program, yet it allows the agent to pay based on production instead of as a fixed retainer. A year of personal, custom coaching from business plan through customer care, listing procurement, lead development… every aspect of your business is analyzed and improved. This program has unique requirements and structure. To qualify, Agent must have transacted at least $1.5 mil in Real Estate sales volume in the last year in the State of Florida. Instead of paying for coaching up front, as a fixed expense, ARES, Inc. earns its fee through transactions that go pending during the coaching relationship at an 18% referral, with a cap of 12,000 per Agent per year.
